    I got my 2ds not even 24 hours ago, unfortunately somewhy it came with no SD Card, which I assume I'll have to buy some time later and since 3ds games are out of my list until I get an SD Card I was thinking if there's a way to play my old DS games that I have in my old R4.
    Any info on how to do so will be genuinely appreciated

    Just a simple one, it has nothing written on its cover besides "R4" and "Revolution for DS (NDSL/NDS)"

    Went through this a few weeks ago... There were a lot of versions of the r4 back in the day. I was using an r4 clone called the m3 ds simply. The flashcart has to be updated to the latest firmware it can get to which is why knowing which version it is helps a lot.

    What worked for me was using the woodr4 launcher and reformatting the card to 16kb clusters. You'd need a compatible memory card too. Those flashcarts were mostly made when 4gb was considered big. My m3 simply wouldn't support any past 2gb. Another reason why we need to know what kind of cart that is...

    From the looks of it, it's a R4v2

    Try downloading the latest wood kernel for the r4 {I'm using 1.62} and using the woodr4 launcher to launch it.
